Super 8 Austin Airport, South
Travel Blogs from Austin
New Orleansista maanantai aamuna lähtiessämme päätimme ajaa taas pelkkää interstatea pitkin, koska matkaa oli edessä 800km. Eli suht kiva siivu taas tiedossa. Austin oli valittu kohteeksi, sillä siellä oli Stevie Ray Vaughan'in muistopatsas, ja hyvä live musiikki scene. Nyy orliins ja Lousiana pyyhkiytyi taakse, ja päästiin Texasin puolelle. Joo, …
... more for other places. It's not so much the driving on the left, but the roundabouts that caused a lot of missed exits, backtracking and frustration.
We need to plan more rest days. One or two would have helped our stamina and sanity.
It would have been better to stay longer at fewer B&Bs. Those "one-night-stands" meant re-packing every morning. Staying in one or two places is how we've traveled before, but we tried to fit in too much ...
I am a little bent out of shape that I have already written this entry
and lost it on the family MAC. It is amazing in today's world that I
can actually still lose documents. I am special and so is Austin. Part
of our hearts and souls will always be in Austin. It is where Kara and
I got to know each other, where we started our marriage and where we
had our first kid. All of those things can happen everywhere but it is
nice when ...
Bright and early we left lovely New Orleans on our second
Megabus ride to Austin, capital city of Texas, to visit my Masi (great-aunt)
and her family. After an hour's stop in Houston, my dad’s cousin, Sonia, picked us up from the drop-off spot in Austin which was a tiny little car park on a side road (we have heard from Sonia since that nearby residents have started to complain about the noise!) It had been a
long journey without any proper food (hard to get much ...
... keep in mind is that dressed in a heavy Santa suit with a wig, beard and thick hat, things get pretty hot pretty quick and I was sweating in no time flat. The 'stache was doomed.
As I made my way out of the locker room and into the employee hallway, I was on the receiving end of smiles, laughter and photo ops from all of my co-workers. A few knew it was me in the suit, but most didn't right off. So I yucked it up and posed for pics in the hallway as ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Super 8 Austin Airport, South
Superb Super 8
When a business associate recommended this hotel, I had my doubts. Turns out it is a new facility and an excellent accommodation. Our room would class as a suite. Everything was clean, the staff was excellent, and the place was quiet. The location is convenient to downtown Austin. I would stay again.
Herrliches Super 8
Als mir ein Geschäftskollege das Hotel empfahl, hatte ich so meine Zweifel. Es stellte sich heraus, dass es eine neue Einrichtung und eine ausgezeichnete Unterkunft ist. Unser Zimmer könnte man als Suite bezeichnen. Alles war sauber, das Personal ausgezeichnet und das Hotel ruhig. Das Hotel befindet sich in der Nähe der Innenstadt. Ich würde wieder dort absteigen.
Super 8 superlativo
Quando un collega mi ha consigliato questo albergo ero un po' scettico. Invece la struttura era nuova e la camera eccellente. La nostra camera sarebbe classificabile come suite. Era tutto pulito, il personale era eccellente, e il posto era silenzioso. La posizione è comoda per il centro di Austin. Ci tornerei.
We just returned from 6 nites in Austin. Because it was a very busy weekend for conferences, we ended up staying in 3 different places: the Austin Motel, Adams House B and B, and this Super 8. All were priced about $100 per nite, give or take with taxes. The 1st two were our real choices but neither had rooms for the weekend. But we were surprised that the Super 8 was by far the most comfortable. Each Super 8 is individually owned and the Kumars, who own this one, make every effort to insure a comfortable stay. There is a great deal of sweetness in the desk staff as well as a lovely welcome letter from Mr. Kumar. The comforts are numerous. First off, the bed is super comfortable with lovely soft linens. The TV has DVD and VHS built in . There are black out curtains so that sleeping late is easy. There is a free massage chair in the lobby that eased the travel tensions. The breakfast is more than continental and fabulous dessers are set out each evening. Coffee is always available. Everything appears new and spotless. Should we have wanted to, we could have done our laundry there. Last year we stayed at the downtown Hyatt and not to diminish the Hyatt, the care and quality of this property is just as nice. It isn't far from the downtown part of the city, but having a car is absolutely necessary.
We stayed in the incredibly large Family Suite, which is really just a very large room and not a suite at all. There is an arch on the ceiling that seperates the seating area from the bed area, but NO DOOR. We were intending to put the baby to bed in the bedroom and close the door so we could watch TV, but that obviously wasn't possible. We ended up having to keep her awake a little late and we all went to bed at the same time. We also liked the full kitchen idea, but it had NOTHING in the numerous cabinets to use in the kitchen. A few dishes, but they were grimy and there was no dish soap or scrubby thing, so we couldn't use them. No silverware, no bowls, no pots/pans, no hot pads. All empty cabinets. A brand new stove and no way to use it! So we had to use all plastic and styrofoam anyway, which I HATE!
Since we were not familiar with the Austin area this hotel seemed to have what we needed. We just needed a one night stay and a shuttle to the airport. Upon arriving the desk person was friendly. The advertising from the hotel site stated 24-hour shuttle service but when we checked in asked for a shuttle to return us to the hotel after dropping off our rental car. The hotel was only about 2 miles away. She informed us that all shuttle service had to be scheduled in advance. When telling her it was in advance of a few hours she said there was no shuttle available. So, instead of returning our rental car to the airport and saving a day's rental charge we had to keep it for another night to drive ourselves back to the airport in the morning. After adding up what a cab would have cost, it was not worth the hassle. They say they will pick you up from the airport and return you there but it was not so for us. The room was comfortable but very noisy from neighboring rooms. There was a snoring man next door that vibrated through the walls. You could hear the people walking in the rooms one floor up clearly. Nice shower and a good supply of towels and pillows. A coffee maker was supplied as well as the necessary toiletries. The air conditioner worked well. They serve a continental type breakfast starting at 6am but we skipped that. There were several other hotels we saw that looked closer to the airport and one right on the airport property. That will be our next visit.
Wir hatten einen herrlichen Aufenthalt!!!
Das Hotel ist kein übliches Super 8. Es gibt einen 27 Zoll-Flachbildfernseher (einige Zimmer haben sogar einen 72 Zoll-Fernseher), DVD-Player, Videorecorder, und zwar alles in ihrem Standard-Zimmer. Es gibt ein Businesscenter und ein Fitnesscenter, die man kostenlos benutzen kann!!!! Für 70 bis 80 Dollar pro Tag ist das Hotel wirklich super. Das Frühstück ist im Preis inbegriffen und jeden Abend werden Snacks serviert. Man kann sogar in der Lobby DVDs ausleihen. Insgesamt finde ich, dass es für Leute mit schmalem Geldbeutel ideal ist, um Austin zu besuchen. Würde auf jeden Fall wieder hier absteigen.
¡¡¡Nos lo pasamos de maravilla!!!
Este sitio no es como los normales Super 8. Tiene televisión plana de 27 pulgadas (algunas habitaciones la tienen incluso de 72 pulgadas), reproductor de DVD, video, todo en su habitación estándar. Tienen un centro de negocios complementarios y un centro de fitness todo gratuito!!!! Por unos 70-80 dólares al día este lugar es realmente increíble. Tienen un desayuno complementario y snacks de noche que sirven a diario. Incluso alquilan DVD en el vestíbulo. En su conjunto creo que es un gran sitio para estar en Austin cuando tienes presupuesto suficiente. Sin duda alguna volvería aquí otra vez.
Had a Wonderful Stay !!!
This place is not like your regular Super 8. They have a 27inch flat screen TV (few of the rooms have even a 72 inch) ,DVD player, VCR , all in their standard room. They have a complimentary business center and fitness center all free !!!! For about 70-80 bucks/day this place is really awesome. They have a complimentary breakfast and evening snacks served daily. They even have DVD rentals in the lobby. All together I think this is a great place to stay in Austin when on a budget. Would definitely stay here again.
